 Sunday of the Steward - February 28, 2016

Morning Service at 10:00  -  Divine Liturgy at 10:30 


 Isaiah 56:1-57:21 (Pgs 732-733)  Ephesians 4:17-5:14 (Pgs 176-177) Luke 16:1-31 (Pgs 72-73) 

Rev. Fr. Arshen Aivazian

Greeters: Robert Kaprelian


We warmly welcome all who have come to worship the Lord on this Fourth Sunday of Lent.  As designated by the Church the whole period of Lent including Holy Week is intended to be one of self-discipline, a time of reflection, spiritual discipline and self-examination all in prepartion for Easter.  It is a season of inner change and re-dedication of God.  Let us experience our Lenten journey just as Jesus himself went to the wilderness and prepared himself for forty days by fasting and praying.  

Requiem Service

 Requiem Service (Hokehankisd) Page 56 of the Divine Liturgy Book -  Requiem Service will be offered today for the repose of the souls of Siva and Mary Martin requested by their sons, Robert Mardirossian and his wife, M. Lavin and Jack Mardirossian, Mary's brothers and their wives: Marty and Jean Kaprelian and Robert and Victoria Kaprelian.    

Following church services you are invited to Fellowship Hour hosted by the The Mardirossian Family, Marty & Jean Kaprelian, and Robert and Victoria Kaprelian in memory of Siva and Mary Martin.

The flowers have been donated by A.G.B.U. in memory of Siva and Mary Martin.

 We offer our condolences to the Zakarian family on the death of Rose Zakarian.
Funeral services were held here at St. Gregory on Friday, Feb. 26, 2016 by Rev. Hovhan. The family has requested in lieu of flower donations be made to St. Gregory Armenian Church. 
May her soul rest in eternal peace.
